Biden is going to Israel tomorrow, will give unwavering support
US President Joe Biden is going to Israel tomorrow Wednesday to announce his unwavering support for Israel. It is reported that he will also go to Jordan after that. Biden announced the visit to Israel amid fears that the ongoing Israel-Hamas war is going to turn into a regional conflict.
US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken announced, the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip has reached a dire state, the visit is in the context of preparations for a possible ground attack by Israel in Gaza to eliminate Hamas.
Notably, US and Israeli officials consider the October 7 attack by Hamas inside Israel to be the deadliest attack against Jews since the Holocaust.
Biden will deliver the strongest message of support for Israel during the visit. His Democratic administration pledged military aid, sending in US aircraft carriers. Officials say they are calling on Congress to approve an additional $2 billion in aid to Israel and Ukraine.
Meanwhile, the Pentagon said that they are sending 2,000 soldiers to be deployed in Israel. They will work in support of Israel. However, they will not engage in combat, but rather perform medical and advisory duties.
Meanwhile, Israel is fully prepared for a ground operation in Gaza. The country also continued bombing Gaza. In this context, more than 1 million residents are forced to flee from the bloody Gaza. They are fleeing with whatever they can take with them. Some carry their essentials in bags or suitcases, on three-wheeled motor bikes, in battery-powered cars, in vans and even in donkey-drawn carts.
Fearing bombardment and Israeli orders to leave southern Gaza, people are taking shelter wherever they can, including on the streets and in UN-run schools.”No electricity, no water, no internet,” said Mona Abdel Hamid, 55, who fled Gaza’s Rafah city. I felt like I was losing my humanity.’

Last Saturday, the Palestinian group Hamas launched a sudden major attack on Israel. Immediately thereafter, Israel began indiscriminate bombing of Gaza. The attack continues. In this situation, Israel has prepared to carry out air, ground and naval attacks on Gaza. They are describing it as a ‘significant ground operation’.Meanwhile, Iran, which supports Hamas and Lebanon’s Hezbollah, has warned that such attacks will be retaliated against.
Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdullahian said that no one can guarantee that the situation will be under control and that the conflict will not escalate. Meanwhile, there have been incidents of shooting on the Israel-Lebanon border last week. Israel was forced to close the area to civilians.
A rocket hit a UN peacekeeping base in southern Lebanon on Sunday. Israeli military sources have confirmed that one person was killed in an attack by Hezbollah in Israel. At least 10 people were killed in Lebanon and two in Israel last week. A Reuters journalist was among those killed in Lebanon.
Israeli Defense Minister Yav Galant said his country has no interest in fighting in the north. They don’t want to escalate the situation.
Israel has massed thousands of heavily armed troops in the desert south of the country. These troops are waiting for the green signal to enter Gaza. The Israeli army ordered 1.1 million Palestinians from the northern part of the Gaza Strip to move to the south. However, Israel continues to bomb Khan Yunus in the entire south.
Meanwhile, foreign governments and donor agencies, including the United Nations, the Red Cross, have criticized Israel’s order for Palestinians to leave. The United Nations says nearly 1 million Palestinians have been displaced in the first week of the conflict. The United Nations has warned that this number could be higher.
Meanwhile, hospitals in Gaza are overflowing with casualties. On Sunday, health officials say, nine thousand six hundred Palestinians were injured in indiscriminate bombings.
Gazans are effectively trapped by the Israeli-controlled crossing and Egypt’s closure of the Rafah border in the south. Meanwhile, Tel Aviv is worried about the safety of Israeli prisoners in the hands of Hamas. “We want to bring them back alive,” Irat Zaila, the aunt of the nine-month-old and four-year-old, said in a sobbing voice. These children, including their mothers, have been imprisoned by Hamas.
Lynn Hastings, the UN humanitarian coordinator for the Palestinian territories, criticized Israel for linking humanitarian aid to Gaza with the exchange of hostages. Nothing should be conditional, he mentioned in his video post. He said Israel says it will destroy Hamas, but its current moves seem to destroy Gaza itself.
Considering the situation, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has warned that the entire region is now on the edge of an abyss.
